The World Health Organisation conducted a Global status report card on road base hit in 2013 which estimated road deaths in Cambodia at 2,300 yer annum. Despite the fact that Cambodia was one of the countries selected to be contribution of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Global Road Safety Programme between 2010 and 2014 road deaths have not stopped increasing .
The Phnom Penh Post reported a steep rebel in road deaths in 2019 with year on year figures up by 100 for the third quarter of the year. Figures from the National Police showed that 488 people were killed and 1,494 injured in the 988 traffic accidents reported between July and September 2019. We can only imagine how many more accidents went unreported !
The causes of accidents on Cambodia ’ south roads are numerous. Speeding is creditworthy for a third of them but other reasons cited by the police include failing to respect other road users ’ right of way, failure to stay in lane, overtaking without due wish, drink drive, vehicle faults and driving while tired.
One thing is for indisputable : it ’ s a jungle out there on the roads and the likelihood of having an accident is high. Which means that indemnity is non-negotiable for anyone wish to get behind the rack. Whether you zip about Phnom Penh on a 125cc without a license or travel across the country in your Toyota Prius you need to ensure that you have adequate indemnity cover .
You may be the earth ’ s most careful driver but you can ’ t control everyone else on the roads. When others skip lights, weave from one lane to the following or pull out when they don ’ t have right of means, your fomite, or, worse still, you, could end up a fatal accident .
A damaged vehicle is costly enough but if you suffer a serious wound requiring hospital treatment and you want to access the best care available in Cambodia – or even need to seek treatment far afield in Thailand or Vietnam – the costs could spiral out of control.
